Roomies!

Lodgings are expensive! Let’s share some costs!
This thread is for people seeking room mates at Shux 2019

Hi All!

I’m Sidney, 28yo non-binary femme boardgamer from Rhode Island USA, solo traveling to Vancouver for an extended weekend (flying in Thurs Oct3, flying out Mon Oct7)

I’m looking to split the cost of a hotel room or AirBnB, cos damn $200/night gets expensive for a $150 con (if you have different travel dates, I can be flexible re:room cost sharing).

I prioritize having other queer folx as roommates if possible but I think I’d be pretty comfortable with whoever so long as they have basic human decency haha.
There are some pretty sweet Air BnB’s downtown and it’d be great to lock one down early.

This’ll be my first board game convention, and it’s a bit of a self-birthday present (I turn 29 on Shux Sunday!)
I’ve been to Vancouver once before and I am super excited to go back!
I plan on renting a bicycle on Thursday and ride around Stanley Park.

Reply below if you too will be looking for roommates!
and/or PM me to see if we’d be good roomies
It’s never too early to have your plans planned out :slight_smile:

Not looking for roommates but I can let you know about a cheap hotel. It’s the Patricia and it’s unfortunately located on East Hastings but I stayed there last year and had no issues with the neighbourhood at all (other than just the despair around).

I just booked again for this year and it was $305 for four nights. If you need people to walk with back and forth, I can probably make arrangements.
